Easy Creamy Butter Bean Hummus

Easy Creamy Butter Bean Hummus. It’s quick and easy to make. It’s vegan and oil-free with just a handful of healthy ingredients. It makes a great snack with some veggies or crackers. Use it as a spread on wraps or sandwiches. You could even use this hummus as a base to make a quick salad dressing. Honestly, what is not to love.

This butter bean hummus recipe is perfect for people who are intolerant or don’t like chickpeas.
Personally, I think butterbeans make the creamiest hummus! So this butter bean hummus is almost always present when in my household when it comes to healthy snacks.

Tips For Making This Hummus:

  • This is a basic recipe and all the ingredients can be easily adjusted to your taste. Add more garlic, less salt/more salt, add more/reduce cumin, increase the amount of lemon juice, …. Just try, give it a taste, and experiment until you are happy with its taste.
  • I used Homemade Tahini to make this butter bean hummus but you can use shop-bought tahini!
  • I like using ready-cooked butter beans out of a can to make this dip. However, you can use the dried ones and cook them yourself

    Fabulous light hummus. Great flavour and wonderful texture. I prefer it to the traditional chicken pea hummus.

      Pleased to hear you liked this hummmus. I find butterbean hummus much tastier than chickpea hummus as well. The butter beans have a very creamy texture, making the hummus creamier without the need of added oils or too much tahini.
